Wow, storage can be expensive…

We have been trying to plan the storage of our ashes once we leave this world.  Had our plans made right up to cremation and couldn’t or didn’t want to burden anyone with the decision of where to scatter or store our ashes.

Nice location

Finally decided on a niche at the local cemetery in Cedar just south of Nanaimo on Cedar Road.  This was the same agency that cremated mom in 1982 and found them to be quite approachable and again this time we really appreciated the time taken to explain everything to us.

We’re told that very few people want to discuss death or dying or the after affects but really this is in aid of who we leave behind, not the one(s) who die.

So even Jack and Cate were invited by the planner into the meeting and got treats and good sniffs (one would assume).

Now we did mention cost.  So believe it or not the higher up the monument you reserve your niche space, the cheaper it is, unlike buying a condo.  So we choose the top and saved $500.

So now we have to make 4 equal payments for the niche and the opening and closing and upkeep in-memorial and voila, there we stay.

P.S. – Just shopping for a Jimmy Buffett themed urn.  Didn’t realize they would be so hard to find.
